No, footbal is so simple, dont use boxmodeling. You already have a ready football in Max, The GeoSphere. Try it, set segments for ex to 3 and geodesic base type to icosa--> your football is ready. The black fields are 5 edged and the white ones are 6 edged. extrude the fields smooth them . Thats it. :-)
